! Actually, David and Huaiyu, I think it is none of the above.  If you

	Heh.  You'd think since I wrote the page, asked someone (with
smaller res than I) to produce the screenshot, added the text to the
screenshot; that I'd have looked, as many times as I have responded to
this post; and verify what was being asked.  Mr. Taylor is indeed correct
- as even the text I put on it says "Unfocused and Shaded"; points out
that there is no term to come to the conclusion it is transparent.  I hope
this is finally all cleared up now. :\
